Nestled between my kitchen garden and my chicken coop, sits a humble little building where I keep the goods I gather. Things like vintage fabrics, antique books, old oil paintings and any number of things that appeal to me. It’s a happy little place I call The Brown Shed.
I wear many hats these days, so having the shed a short walk outside my back door enables me to be a shop keeper while being at home. It’s such a gift to have a business that compliments and folds into my day to day life so seamlessly. Being a wife and a mother is my greatest work, and often my hardest, but I don’t want to miss it!
I have a wonderful husband who never complains when I ask him to help me haul all sorts of finds and furniture, two beautiful and talented grown-up daughters that keep me up to date on what’s fashionable, a cute little whipper snapper of a son (don’t tell him I said that) that keeps us on our toes and our knees, and an incredible son-in-law I would have hand-picked had my daughter not picked him herself. Add to this great crew, a garden, a flock of hens, a couple of geriatric dogs, and two cats we scraped up off the street (literally) and voila...that’s my life. Even though my day to day is pretty ordinary, it’s a life I feel tremendously blessed to live. The fact that this ordinary life of mine, is a dream life for many in this world is not lost on me. It’s a gift, and I hope to steward it well.
That’s enough about me. Thanks to you for stopping by and reading, and for being a part in this adventure. I hope you drop in every so often to see what’s new. We have some fun stuff in the works you might be interested in knowing about.
